Things sure change in a short period of time. An eastbound GO Train of single level cars lead by an APCU, passes the sight of the former Port Union CN station just west of Rouge Hill. The spur track used to be the station Team Track and was regularly used for the "pushers" which would help westbound trains up the hill to Scarboro. Just east of 702 on the lakeside, would have been the classic CNR water tank and across from it near the pick-up truck a standpipe for steam locomotives to take on water before attacking the grade.
